The Ing Hive is the center of Ing activity and the Dark Aether version of the Sanctuary Fortress. It is an enormous technological building overlooking what appears to be a poisonous ocean. The Hive Temple is guarded by Quadraxis, as well as many other darkling-possessed mechanoids. As its name implies, it is the only known place that contains Ing Larva Swarms, possibly making the Hive the birth place of all Ing classes.
Areas and Main RoomsEdit
Like its light version, the Ing Hive is clearly divided into two main areas:
Its rooms form a "T" shape and some are completely isolated.
Like the light version, the Upper Level is only accessible through two elevators from the Lower Level. The Hive Summit is completely isolated from the rest of the structure, only accessible by portals in the Aerie.
- Moons are visible on the right picture, yet they were never seen at the Ing Hive in-game because of the thick, purple-clouded atmosphere.
